Charming!

Although you can only watch it from the lake's bank it is fascinating. The palace and its reflection in the lake with the background of the mountains form a great spectacle.

This jal mahal place is very good to see and it is very beautiful to see at night time and one bad thing to say is presence of gutter near to mahal and it's smells very bad.

This is one of my favorite places in Jaipur. The view of the palace looking like it is floating on the shimmering blue waters is truly magnificent. Walking along the shoreline boulevard and taking in the romantic vistas is a must for any visitor to Jaipur. Even on the hottest days you can get a cooling breeze as the wind... More

The palace sits in the middle of a lake. It looked beautiful. It will be better if visitors are allowed to enter the palace.

Jal mahal itself must have been beautiful at one time. But the surroundings are not maintained well at all. We just stopped on the road and took some photos from afar because you actually cannot go to jal mahal. The roadside spot is very dirty, and stagnant water is collected there. It's really not worth it... take a photo from... More

You can drive by this while in Jaipur, besides for some pictures there isn't much more to this sight. Rumor has it that it is going to be turned into a hotel.

You get great views across the lake to Jal Mahal. Unfortunately we could only stop during the day. I believe that it is fantastic lit up at night. Apparently it is being converted into a 6 star hotel so maybe you will be able to get a look inside in the future.
